another pair of painted shoes

since the first pair i painted, i’ve been thinking about what to paint next. i pulled these ones out of my closet yesterday afternoon.


i bought them at the thrift store about 7 or 8 years ago, i don’t think i’ve ever worn them. they’re actually quite comfortable but every time i try them on, the big white band across the toe looks too…well, too big and white! i was originally going to paint something totally different on them, but when i sat down to do it i looked at my scherenschnitte skirt (which i find myself wearing all the time) and thought how cute it would be to have coordinating shoes! they also go very nicely with my favorite things skirt. here’s how they ended up!


 i like them so much better now!

    Oh my GOSH! I just discovered your little blog and I’m in HEAVEN! It brought back this FLOOD of memories of growing up in Germany (I was an Army brat!). It was the longest we lived anywhere- and I was completely enamored with the kitschy side of things….and that’s never subsided! I’m completely in love with your creations and the photos of your garden,etc. Thanks for a lovely addition to my “favorites” to visit online!

    I’ve painted on many shoes, always ended up ruining them. This is how it’s done!
